Ironic that on a day when I talk about trying to find and keep a perspective on the important things I lose the audio for a second day in a row. Looks like the new lapel mic I purchased is not going to work, so I’ll be looking for a different alternative.
Fortunately I have some options. Might just take a day or two to get it in place.
No walking this morning. We had severe thunderstorms overnight and the rain has continued through the morning. It’s expected to taper off so I’m going to try and get the days walk in this afternoon or early evening. See you then!
Bad news is that what I did not know is that the recording app is recording from my phone’s microphone and NOT the microphone on my earbuds.
This explains some of the mic noise yesterday that coincided with my handling and moving of the phone, and why Baby Girl’s conversation was as loud as it was…since the phone was resting on her stroller cover. It also means that todays recording in it’s raw form was almost un-listenable since the phone spent the entire walk in my hand at my side. The good news is that I put the audio through a production filter and managed to at least level the sound so my voice should be as loud as the background noise. Not sure if that’s going to help or not, but at least it’s something. I’m also switching up my recording apps, and adjusting the work flow, so this shouldn’t happen again.
Long story short… tomorrow should be better quality.
